We are recruiting an Early Stage Researcher (ESR) to work in the Marie Curie Innovative Training Network (ITN) “Applications and Hardware for Photonic Quantum Information Processing (AppQInfo)”. The ITN will provide multidisciplinary training culminating in PhDs awarded by Imperial College London.
We have two fully-funded PhD studentships available in the Ultrafast Quantum Optics group at Imperial College London.
The first is funded by the European Commission’s Marie-Skłodowska-Curie Actions Innovative Training Network (ITN) and the second is via the EPRSC and the Quantum Computing & Simulation Hub. Both research topics are centred around the experimental implementation of quantum simulators using interfering photons.
Quantum computers promise to deliver strong computational speedups, at least for a few relevant problems. One path towards building a quantum computer is to design a small quantum device and carefully scale it up, this is the so-called monolithic approach. An alternative path is to link small quantum devices via entanglement and create a distributed quantum computer. While this approach has the advantage of sidestepping the need to control very large quantum systems it brings challenges of its own such as the periodic distribution of entanglement.
We offer a 3.5-years PhD position for a motivated researcher to join our work on spin qubits in silicon carbide (SiC). Colour centres in SiC have recently be shown to uniquely combine excellent spin properties with ultrastable optical transitions for spin-photon interfacing. Our goal is to exploit the technological properties of this semiconductor, with established growth, doping and fabrication, to develop quantum devices to build building blocks for the future Quantum Internet.
A PhD position available now in the group of Prof. Jarek Korbicz within OPUS project "Novel approach to decoherence and information transfer studies in open quantum systems" founded by the National Science Center of Poland.
